Hello,

Was wondering if anybody could give some advice about this situation. I am shooting a commercial for a class on a Panavision G2 with tungsten stock. We are shooting on the 5th floor of a library where one side is a wall of windows with sunlight pouring in. Overhead there are countless fluorescent fixtures which are impossible to gel with minus green. Because some simple souls tripped a breaker on a previous shoot, we cannot use any juice inside the library and therefore we will have no other lighting besides the sunlight and the fluorescents. If I throw an 85 filter on the camera to correct for the daylight, what will that do to the fluorescents? I've heard that fluorescents uncorrected will look very green. Anybody have any suggestions as to how I could balance everything out.
Thanks

Ryan
